Throw Pillows - Virginia Home Tour Part 2

Today is part 2 of my little home tour. (Click here for Part 1 – Sitting Room)  I always enjoy when other bloggers share glimpses of their home, so I’d thought I’d do the same.

Eclectic Gallery Wall - Front Entry - Virginia House

Moving from New York to Virginia has been huge for me.  I’m not sure why, because I’ve moved out-of-state before, but this time it felt a bit monumental, like a forever after kind of move.
